About This Quiz

From Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh to John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara to Robert Mitchum and Jane Russell, the 1950s offered us dozens of iconic Hollywood couples. 

On-screen, Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron danced their way into each other's hearts, while gambler Marlon Brando seduced young nun Jean Simmons and Katharine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart fell in love while performing an act of patriotism. 

Off-screen, celebrity romances were just as dramatic. Ava Gardner and Frank Sinatra left their spouses for each other, while Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller formed a much-documented odd couple. Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III, and Eddie Fisher married adorable Debbie Reynolds, then ditched her for smoldering Elizabeth Taylor.

So, which classic '50s movie couple resembles you and your partner? Do you have an epic love, like Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr in "From Here to Eternity"? Or explosive chemistry, like Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in "To Catch a Thief"? 

In this quiz, we'll ask you questions about how you and your significant other live, work and play. In the process, we'll determine what makes your relationship tick. By the end of the quiz, we'll be able to tell you which iconic '50s couple describes your relationship perfectly!
